All Good Things

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be;
for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our
happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."
Martha Washington


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request.

1 Chronicles 4:10


Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4


Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, and His faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 100

There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen, that it is from the hand of God. For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him? For to a person who is good in His sight He has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, while to the sinner He has given the task of gathering and collecting so that he may give to one who is good in God's sight. This too is vanity and striving after wind.

Ecclesiastes 2:24-26



Then you will say on that day, "I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord; for although Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is turned away, and Thou dost comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation." Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation. And in that day you will say, "Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; make them remember that His name is exalted." Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things; let this be known throughout the earth. Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 12





This quote is from Our Daily Bread - May, 2020 Issue

"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst."
Matthew 18:20

Gauge refers to the measurement of stitches and rows contained in a stitch pattern sample.
Always begin your gauge swatch with the recommended hook size and yarn then adjust the
hook size as needed. Be sure to make your swatch large enough to get a proper measurement.

To measure the stitch gauge... lay the ruler horizontally across the work.
Row gauge... lay the ruler vertically across the work.

The measurements of your gauge swatch lets you know if your gauge meets what
is recommended for your pattern. If it doesn't measure up like the pattern says
then you should adjust your hook size accordingly...
too many stitches in your measurement... switch to a larger hook
too few stitches... switch to a smaller hook

Keep in mind... if your project isn't for a garment or an item that needs to be the approximate suggested size in the pattern instructions... then checking the gauge isn't as critical.








Need help knowing which is the last stitch on a row?
Place a marker in the first stitch of each row to eliminate the confusion.

Re: I_Have_A_Question

My daughter is going to have her first baby I would love to crochet him a blanket. I would like to crochet a blanket that is like the ABC blanket that is free on your website. I would like it to have his name on it.  His name will be Kaiden. I thought his name could go down vertically in the middle of the blanket.  And either hearts or some other boy things could be in the four corners of the pattern. The rest of the the squares could just be plain.  Could you create a pattern for me to follow?  If you can please let me know how much it would cost and from there I could decide if I am interested.  Thank you for your time in reading my post. I look forward to hearing from you regardless of the outcome.

Sincerely, Mrs. L. Brown

Dear Mrs. Brown


The Baby's ABCs Afghan pattern is all you need to make the afghan you mentioned.

Baby's ABC's Afghan

The existing pattern is five blocks wide and six blocks long.
All you need to do is substitute the letters to spell "Kaiden" in the squares of the center column and work the rest of the squares with no letters. I have a heart pattern included on the pattern page that you can use for the corners.
I have made this many times and have also changed the pattern to include a name at times.
I hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I have.



Re: Instruction help please

I am making a hexagon blanket and am having a difficult time understanding the instructions.

This is where I am stuck:

hdc in 3rd ch of beg ch-3 to join, turn – 5
ch-2 corner sps and joining hdc sp for 6th

Thank you in advance for you help!

Hi Cindy:

hdc in 3rd ch of beg ch-3 to join, turn

... that language is the end of your round. You work a half double crochet in the third chain of the beginning chain 3. This means you work the half double crochet in the top of the first three chains you made at the beginning of that round.

– 5
ch-2 corner sps and joining hdc sp for 6th corner.

.... this part is for reference.
Once the round is finished you should have 5 corners where you made 2 chains and a sixth corner where you made the half double crochet. All six corners should look the same even though the last one was formed with the half double crochet.

Hope this helps.

Your clarification was a great help! Here is my progress so far. It isn’t perfect but it’s the first time I have done anything this complicated. And I am learning a lot.

Thank you so much for answering my question! It is very much appreciated.

Cindy's Hexagon

God Bless you!

This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns. The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful.

NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns. Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

I have to tell you about this new book.'s Fabulous & Flirty Crochet
I'm so happy to have it in my crochet library.

Katherine Lee has an eye for style and a definite knack for creating beautiful crochet patterns.
I was really happy with the large colorful project photos.
There's something for everyone!
The aspect of Fabulous and Flirty Crochet that stood out to me was the section on the yarns used in the patterns.
One page shows "actual size" photos of the yarns which makes it super easy to substitute other yarns if you want to.
For those who stay strictly to the recommended yarn in a pattern Katherine has included a yarn resource list.
The projects are very fashionable and perfect for gift giving... though I'm sure you'll have to make something for yourself :o)
I can't wait to try the Flirty Skirt and the Ruffled Strap Tank.

Six-year-old Susie came home from school whining,
"Mommy, I've got a stomach ache."

"That's because your stomach is empty," her mother replied.
"You'd feel better if you had something in it."

She gave Susie a snack and sure enough, Susie felt better right away.

That afternoon the family's minister dropped by.
While he was chatting with Susie's mom, he mentioned he'd had a bad headache all day long.
Susie perked up.

"That's because it's empty," she said.
"You'd feel better if you had something in it."


A little girl was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke up, "Grandpa, did God make you?"

"Yes, sweetheart," he answered. "God made me a long time ago."

"Oh," she paused. "Grandpa, did God make me too?"

"Yes, indeed, honey," he said. "God made you just a little while ago."

Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, "God's getting better at it, isn't he?"

I was the new teacher for the toddler-age Sunday school class, which included my 14-month-old daughter. During a lesson on creation, I'd ask questions like, "Who made the trees?" or "Who made the sun?" and the children would respond, "God did."

I was pleased the children learned quickly that God made everything. Teaching lessons at home was more of a challenge. I had tried hard to teach my daughter to pick up her toys, and she wasn't learning very quickly. One day I walked into the living room to find toys scattered everywhere. In exasperation I asked, "Who made this mess?" My daughter looked at me with a proud smile and said, "God did!"

Because I was processing my first accident report at the transport company where I worked, I was being particularly attentive. The driver had hit a deer on the highway, and the result was a severely damaged hood and fender. My serious mood was broken, however, when I reached the section of the report that asked, "Speed of other vehicle?" The driver had put, "Full gallop."

One day I decided to take my three children to a skating party in a nearby town, but after several wrong turns and stops to ask directions, I pulled over to the side of the road and suggested we all ask God to help us find the rink.

When we finally arrived, we were nearly an hour late. The following week, as we got into the car to go skating again, my five-year-old son exclaimed, "Mom, let's pray now and save time!"

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying "Free to good home, You want it you take it". For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.

He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal, looks to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read "Fridge for sale $5o".

The next day someone stole it.
